You Don’t Have To Wait For The Royal Wedding To Get Your Royal Wedding Fix

Maybe you’ve heard there’s a wedding coming up over in England or something? Bit of a big deal, and all of our American journalists are bailing on spending Easter with their families so they can be in London to cover this shindig. Anyway, if you’re beside yourself with William and Kate fever, your friends on TV have you covered. No need to wait–it’s Royal Weddingpalooza right now!

CNN’s airs a Soledad O’Brien documentary, The Women Who Would Be Queen Sunday night at 8 p.m. (with additional airtimes). The doc deals not just with Kate Middleton, but also Princess Diana:

“(The documentary) explores how the future King and Queen have been influenced by the legacy of his mother, Princess Diana, and are forging a very modern royal marriage. O’Brien chronicles their friendship-turned-romance, and how they are preparing for an “ordinary” married life in North Wales following their nuptials.”

O’Brien’s documentary features extensive interviews with friends of Kate Middleton and people who were close to the late Princess Diana, including photographers, bodyguards, and Diana’s music teacher.

TLC also gets its royal wedding on this weekend, with Charles and Di: Once Upon a Time, on Sunday at 7 p.m. The two hour special looks back to that royal wedding, complete with “never-seen-before footage” and “poptoid graphics on screen (that) reveal little-known facts and behind-the-scenes trivia about what made this a fairytale wedding come true.”

Here’s a look at The Women Who Would Be Queen, from CNN:
